Heck, I love New Year's. The whole world gettin' psyched about improving themselves? I don't see why we wouldn't want to take advantage of riding the momentum.
I used to waste so much time bouncing around from hack to hack & ignoring the essentials...but YOU don’t have to.
Let's take it one further step this year and implement some EASY practices to ensure those actions have staying power. I promise it's easier than you think.
STEP 1: Know why
Ask why you want your goal and then ask why again. And again. And at least one more time. Know WHY you’re doing it realllll deep & strong. You’re tempted to skip this step - dooooooon’t. Post it where you will see it every day. Again, you're going to be tempted to skip this step. Don't.
STEP 2: Break it down
If you want to lose 20 pounds, what ACTIONS will this take? Exercising 5x/week? Do you workout 1-2 times now? RED FLAG. Expecting to suddenly start exercising 5x/week is why you’ve failed in the past. BREAK. THAT. DOWN. Nail 3x/week + outside the gym stuff. For years we have trained ourselves to take massive action & then let ourselves off the hook when it became unsustainable. We gotta rebuild trust in our own ability to FOLLOW THROUGH.
STEP 3: Supporting practices
Hit the above actions for the next 4 weeks and show yourself how simple it can be.
